We love delving into the history of places where we are staying and this place has typical Lanna houses relocated and refurbished on this University protected site. It was great seeing how typical Thai teak houses were organised in the last century and the early...More

A very nicely presented small outdoor museum of traditional architecture. Nicely landscaped. Serene place. The buildings have mostly been dismantled and then transported and re-assembled here, i.e. original structures, mostly wood but also bamboo, cane and leaves. The explanatory plates are informative. There was a...More

This outdoors museum of Traditional Houses from different parts of Thailand was very interesting. It was not crowded and so it was very enjoyable and relaxing to tour. Lots of shade which helped with the heat. Helpful signage.

There is a nice collection of traditional houses but I feel there is no life, just empty houses after houses. One can't really imagine how they were lived in. Some houses were used as storage.

We were looking forward to this museum and learning more about traditional Lanna houses but were a bit disappointed that the museum seems to have been mostly forgotten. One of the main buildings was locked up and we couldn't go in and the houses had...More
